We are looking for a junior Pensions Lawyer to join our exemplary Pensions team, which is consistently ranked in the top tier by both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners. 

If you would like to join us, you should have an excellent academic record and evidence of 'hands-on' pensions experience gained at a professional firm with a first-class reputation for pensions work.  You should be a strong team player, as one of our values is collaboration and, be able to manage a complex and varied workload effectively, as you will enjoy a variety of work in different areas of the department's practice.  


Our team “has ‘excellent industry knowledge’ and provides ‘practical and pragmatic’ ‘first-class advice’ on pensions in the regulatory field.” (Legal 500)

  • Specialist pensions legal advice
  • Pensions disputes
  • Document drafting


The team provides advice to both public and private sector clients on all aspects of Pensions law. Our practice is largely free-standing, with only a small proportion of our turnover derived from corporate support work.


The team advises over 700 schemes, including:  AT&T, Babcock, Chanel, Crest Nicholson, FirstGroup, Great Lakes, Hampshire County Council, Honda, Leonardo, NAAFI, University of Oxford and Western Power Distribution.
